For all your classic movie needs or recommendations.

I just saw The Sicilian Clan, with is a great gangster movie from the late sixties with a very charming old Pink Panther combined with the Godfather vibe to it.

What is the cut off date for "classic" films? Cause I think The Big Lebowski and Back To The Future are classics but they might not fit in with this thread :O

Troll 2 because it's a terrible yet hilarious movie.
Taxi Driver is a great film and deals with urban decay and mental insanity and the like.
Anything by Akira Kurosawa is also awesome.

One of my favorite movies of all time is A Clockwork Orange. Love the book too.

Anyone who has not seen Pulp Fiction needs to watch it right now. Seriously top-notch acting, a ridiculously Badass and cool flair, a cool narrative, and then some really tense scenes like that diner scene. That scene is cash.

People should really watch the third man. It's got Orson Wells in it and was filmed after WW2 so the ruined Vienna you see in the movie is the actual city that's in ruins after the war.

I saw that movie on VHS back when I was ten, and I was all like: "Black and white is for squares!"
I should revisit.

Another unappreciated classic film: The Three Days of the Condor.

A CIA agent goes into his office to find that all of his co-workers are dead, and that he was framed for it. A chase to  get his name out of the mud and track down the killer begins, with some awesome suspense, shoot-outs, romance and one awesome conspiracy plot. This movie did Bourne before Bourne thought it was cool.

Transformers: The movie (1986) I think It actually might be more outdated then classic, but it's super awesome either way :)

The Kill Bill movies can be found easily for around $10, so worth picking up.
